Welcome to the camper profile page! This page will contain different badges that your child has received throughout the different camps they have attended.
Multiple Intelligence Badges
Howard Gardner proposed a theory to challenge traditional methods of measuring intelligence offering a holistic approach to looking at how one excels in different facets. Being able to recognize a child’s strength and supporting their growth in that direction can lead to them to reach their potential in said intelligence.
**All intelligences can be developed and can change based on age and life events**
Special Achievement Badges are achievements that participants receive specific to the different activities done on camp day. Each camp’s Special Achievement Badges will reflect the learning focus of each camp such as Exploration, Imagination, Experimentation or Creation.
Once upon a time, students at Taitonmai Camp travelled back through time to the land of the dinosaurs. They ventured through ancient Earth to find precious stones, dug for fossils in the sand pit, made prehistoric masks, rescued dinosaurs eggs and survived a volcanic eruption. What a day!
Naturalistic intelligence was strongly demonstrated in this camp. Children who display naturalistic intelligence have a comprehensive understanding of the environment, both living and non-living. They like to be outdoors and are observant of plants and animals in their surroundings.
This badge reflects those with the outstanding ambition to acquire new knowledge. Usually, ask questions on an aspect in their interest naturally on the camp day.
